        The initial technical conduct typical of the artist is represented by the informal specificity, particular of the expressionist - abstract painting practiced / conducted. The influence of the innovative view taken on by artists such as Romul Nuţiu becomes a source of inspiration for the ones found in his creative proximity. The assemblies and the instalments conceived by the artist Adriana Tomici are presented to the public with the occasion of the TransfiGURAre (TransfiGURAtion) exhibition, in 2012, at Calina Gallery in Timisoara. Seduced by the expressive dimension of some household items, the artist recovers them, reinvesting them with new meanings. The three dimensional anthropomorphic objects, vividly coloured, reconfigure a version of reality in which the annulment of the claim of a functional facet makes room for a role play that is expressive through its dynamic chromatics. The anthropomorphic assemblies constitute a dialogue between the forms of modernity, where the joy of abundance raises question marks to the limits of excess.
